We had two lovely meals here. Excellent food, good although limited wine, service was ok but excellent value overall. Good location and ambience

The other bad reviews are correct - the service here is terrible. They will try to force you to order from the overpriced "tourist menu". If you order from the main menu, the will get very abrupt and rude. The wines by the glass appear to be watered down. But the food is okay (just). Nice location outside, but marred... More

A few TA reviews have called out the poor and non existent service at this restaurant and I would have to agree. Even while taking our order, the waiter/owner wasn't overly interested or friendly, very clinical. Pasta was nice enough and reasonably priced, but our experience was very average and customer service is important to me. Would not recommend this... More

We just wanted a pasta and il vicolo was handy. There was a bit of eye rolling when we didn't want a secondi or desert but service was good and the pasta fantastic. Not aldente but not over cooked. Prawns and asparagus pasta had great flavour if a bit short on prawns. The Gorgonzola gnocchi was great. Contrary to other... More

I had lunch here with my sister, we had fettuccine with fish and pistachio and linguine with eggplant and tomatoes. The dishes were tasty and the service was quick. Prices were good.

It is probably one of the worst experiences I have ever had in a restaurant. The fish was grilles until it was basically black. The owner basically made us order what he wanted us to order and the fish was not that fresh. On top the owner who served us was extremely rude. He wanted to kick as out as... More

We walked by and decided to go for dinner. We were a little late, but for Italians 22:30 is not late at all. We were welcomed and nothing about the time was mentioned. From the moment we ordered our food we had the feeling to be unwelcome. Everything was rushed, the waiter was rude, just dropping our drinks and food... More

This was the only place open on a Sunday in a deserted town. Good business decision! The service was fast and food simple. House wine cheap and easy to drink.

This review is late - we were here in October, 2014 but Tripadvisor doesn't allow that option... We were renting in Al Vicoletto apartments above the restaurant. We ate here quite often as it was both easy and most of all, the food was great! The owner was wonderful. We had to pass through the restaurant (it is in the... More
